Fulton Homes has always been a proud proponent of Water Safety in the Phoenix area, and their summer outreach programs recognize the risk many families in the Phoenix area face every day – children near water. So Fulton Homes gave away fifteen pool fences this summer during the Annual Fulton Homes Fence Patrol.
This is the 12th consecutive year that Fulton Homes has presented free pool fences with installation included for residents in need. The program is managed in partnership with KMLE 107.9 and Ironman Pool Fences. The fences are specifically designed to meet city codes for optimum safety. Families are selected through a nomination process from friends and families of the homeowners.
“If the Fence Patrol prevents even one needless drowning, we’ve succeeded,” said Douglas Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes. “Drowning incidents happen in the blink of an eye and can occur with anyone near a pool. At Fulton Homes, we believe that parents must remain vigilant in regard to watching their kids around water and a properly installed pool fence is essential, especially for families with young children in the mix.”
The Fence Patrol is one of many water-related initiatives Fulton homes supports. The Tempe-based homebuilder also sponsors the “2 Seconds is Too Long” campaign as well as supporting the Valley of the Sun YMCA, providing swimming lessons to disadvantaged youths who learn valuable life skills, including personal safety and growth, stroke development, rescue and water sports.
As Doug Fulton explained, “Drowning is a harsh reality in Arizona, and we want to continue doing everything we can to prevent another family tragedy.” For more information go to www.fultonhomes.com and click on the “Fulton Foundation” link.
